In Reply to: SHERMAN FAMILY by Betty Lee Battreal of 463

Here is some info that will hopefully be helpful:

1930 Floyd Co., IN census
Foy S. Sherman 34 mrd. at age 25 b. IN father b. MI mother b. IN Motorman on streetcar
Nellie I. Sherman 31 mrd. at age 22 b. IN parents b. IN
Raymond C. son 5 b. IN
Jewel L. dau 4 b. IN
Archie B. brother 41 b. IN father b. MI mother b. IN

1930 Evansville State Hospital, Vanderburgh co., IN census
Peter Sherman patient 70 widowed b. MI father b. NY mother b. Canada

Couldn't find them in 1920 or 1910???

In further looking at 1910, it seems that many of the children are living with others...
Alma was a "servant"
Norman was "hired hand"
Roy was "hired hand"
Mary F. was listed as "cousin"
Susie was a "servant"
Don't know where Peter was. Dora probably died between 1900-1910 and the kids were "farmed out".

1900 Jefferson twp., Pike Co., IN census
Pete T. Sherman b. 11/1859 40 mrd. 13yrs. b. MI father b. NY mother b. Canada farmer
Dora b. 12/1865 34 mrd. 13yrs. 7children/7living b. IN father b. In mother b. KY
Archie B. son b. 2/1888 12 b. IN father b. MI mother b. IN farm labor
Alma I. dau b. 12/1889 10 b. IN (children b. data same)
Norman J. b. 2/1891 9
Susie T. dau b. 7/1893 6
Mary F. dau b. 8/1894 5
Roy Sylvester son b. 11/1895 4
Hattie Bell dau b. 11/1898 1

Marriage record:

Dora 14 dau b. IN father b. OH mother b. KY

1880 Knox Co., IN
Perry Sherman 52 b. OH father b. VT mother b. RI

Pete 21 son b. Ohio father b. OH mother b. CAN
Wayne?(hard to read) 19 son b. (same)
Thomas 14 son
Phillipp 12 son
Alice 9 dau

It seems there was some "confusion?" as to birth places. That happened very often in census records!

1870 Bennington, Morrow Co., OH
Names listed as I type them:
Preserved Sherman 51 farmer b. OH
Emiley 44 b. Can
Ruth 16 b. OH
William 15 b. MI
Fannie 13 b. MI
Preserved 11 b. MI
Mason 7 b. MI
Thomas 4 b. OH
Philip 2 b. OH

I hope this info is a help to you.
